Well, this is what I've been doing since the last two days (I've used a stop watch to approximately calculate how much time I spend on warm up tongue.gif ):

1. Did the massage you told me. (approx. 4 minutes)
2. Did thumbless (as Todd advised) chromatic runs starting from the 5th fret low E string, and ending at the 12th fret high E and then reverse (once only). (approx. 3 minutes)
3. Did Andy James' warm up from here to a metronome to stretch my fingers: http://andyjamesguitaracademy.com/launch-page-1/ and PDF tab: http://andyjamesguitaracademy.com/wp-conte..._Warming_Up.pdf (approx. 3 minutes)

So, in 10 minutes, I'm all ready to rip it out on the guitar biggrin.gif its been working great, I've seen improvement in my stamina and speed.

Also, any new lick/exercise I want to play, after etching it on my muscle memory, I play it a few times thumbless to a metronome and I get a feel of how much pressure I need to put (and not too much) on the strings to make the notes sound, and it helps me build speed when I use my thumb again biggrin.gif

Maybe someone else would like to try all this for once and tell me how it feels tongue.gif Thank you everyone smile.gif
